Im seriously honored, guys, thanks... It was a real challenge- I mean a real one and once or twice I really didnt think I was going to make it, but the real honor was to be part of such a great group of riders. My helmet's off to all ya'll. Thanks for keeping the finish line open for me
I had a lot more I meant to say at awards- of course unless youre Scotty you get tongue tied at such times but I was choked up.
Thanks for putting on a great event, and I look forward to helping support the future of the sport in North America anyway I can, especially by participating.
Congrats to all the starters, and finishers, and winners, and staff. It was the best to put real names and faces onto internet avatars. I still missed meeting half of you.
